You can NOT be fired for the boot. It is legally a disability, even it is temporary. Talk to the people at the EEOC or local equivalent.

Aww, hooray! Glad to add a little sparkle to your life!
When I worked at tram-K they threatened to fire people over medical issues all the time. Rarely did though, only if they went on leave and didn't come back or provide proper paperwork. They also would try to make people do more than what their paperwork would allow. Which is all a big lawsuit waiting to happen.
I'm not sure if the haunted house will be beneficial to you in the long run. I'm guessing that their customer flow will drop a lot now that Halloween is over (assuming that they are a year-round location) which means that hours will likely be cut back a lot. I'd say, give it a couple weeks, and if the employer or coworkers give to much crap...then bail out.

Definitely bail on the haunted house thing. Yes firing you is illegal. If you were injured in such a way that you were permanently disabled and no longer able to do the job with reasonable acccomodation then yes they could fire you. However with a temporary injury they could have you take disability until you can return to work provided that you are incapable of doing your job, or something comporable until you are healthy.
